Support 3rdEye(Sol)ation's A.L.I.V.E. Children's Arts Program [FUNDRAISER CAMPAIGN]

The gallery that hosted the first nuMAD NYV show is raising funds to save the free children art mentoring programs that have used to run at the gallery. Bushwick badly needs a place like this, it's a place where local kids and artists can come and chill or create and showcase.

Founders of A.L.I.V.E.(Art Lets Inner Voices Emerge), artists Jose Castillo and Josama Palabra have partnered with Genevra Cross and Art In Motion/Monica Watkins in creating this therapeutic arts project. A.L.I.V.E is a Bushwick based free arts program for neighborhood children. 3rd Eye(Sol)ation is an arts-focused community center in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, that strives to empower and uplift the community through the arts. Our passion is to bring diverse people together while exposing them to a brilliant diversity of art programming that facilitates healthy self-exploration and creative expression.We believe that community can function as the glue that holds its members together in an on-going dialogue and unites them through a shared sense of purpose. 
 For more information on our program or to donate please contact Jose Castillo and visit the website and email

FREE DOWNLOAD: Meridian: MAGIC @meridianmagic debut album is out now

The first full length MERIDIAN album is finally out now-I've been waiting to hear it in this complete form since the first time I've heard the tracks a little over a year ago when we were plotting a collabo in their Brooklyn studio. I felt super honored that they reached out to work with me- I thought the project was amazing and hearing the story behinds its birth made it even more so. It's always extra exciting to see people from my close artists community to manifest & succeed on the next level level. It is big!

QUELLE CHRIS : Green Eyes feat. Tanya Morgan, Fresh Daily, Cavalier [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

Oh man, these cats are too much...LMAO!! New video for "Green Eyes" off of Niggas Is Men, a recent project of Quelle Chris feat. Tanya Morgan, Fresh Daily & Cavalier. Directed & edited by Quelle Chris || prod. by Messiah Muzik. Props and miniature eyeware designed by Team Quelle, facial hair grooming by Vidal Sassoon. 

About "Niggas Is Men" : Put together by Quelle Chris with Cavalier and Fresh Daily; produced by Quelle Chris, Messiah Musik, and Sifu; featuring Tanya Morgan, Denmark Vessey, DJ GroWeyez, Chay, and Bwameeks; "Niggas Is Men" is a dusty, sharp cornered 13 track affair. A prelude to Quelle Chris's upcoming Mello Music Group debut proper, NIM is a head-nodding, intoxicating journey through reincarnation, long tokes, the poisoned food supply, addiction cycles, and even hot & crusty hoes.

Available also on  CD 

ADDIS YORK: @DEJAZMACH Spring/Summer Collection

Two new items from the fly new DEJAZMACH Spring/Summer collection are now available online. My personal favorite is the Negus playing card design. In case you might not know, the word negus means "King" in the old languages of Ethiopia & neighboring areas, and is a noun derived from the ancient language Ge'ez verbal root N - G - Ś meaning "to reign." Do your research... Shout to Yafet for putting me on.
